Re: Verse reading–Acts 2:1-41 (day four)
God had placed the nation of Israel at the crossroads of the world. At the Day of Pentecost, there were devout men from every nation under heaven present. God had assembled His band of ambassadors to carry the gospel around the world. The Holy Spirit spoke through the disciples so that every man heard the message in his own native tongue. The message each man heard was of the mighty deeds of God. Immediately, the Spirit began to give insight and understanding of Scripture.
Today, we look for and attribute many deeds to the Holy Spirit. Lest we forget though…the Holy Spirit leads people to God. Evangelism is the work of the Holy Spirit. In our electronic age of internet and social media, we have an even greater opportunity to spread the gospel to every nation under heaven. God used Israel’s position at the world’s crossroads to distribute His message…how will he use our church to be His spokesman in the center of our city?
